Rome, March 27 - Outgoing Premier Mario Monti said
Wednesday that Italy had faced "measures" from India and fellow
BRICS countries as a consequence for choosing not to return two
Italian marines to India to be tried for homicide.
"We had word from Foreign Undersecretary Staffan De Mistura
that the possibility of measures being taken against Italy were
being considered," Monti told the Senate Wednesday.
BRICS, an acronym for Brazil, Russia, India, China and
South Africa, is an influential association of emerging national
economies.
Marines Massimiliano Latorre and Salvatore Girone were sent
back to face trial in India on Friday in a U-turn after Rome had
said they would not return after being allowed to come home to
vote.
In an earlier address to the House, Monti insisted that
economic interests did not influence the decision.
Monti was speaking before both chambers of parliament after
Giulio Terzi abruptly resigned as foreign minister on Tuesday,
saying he had not been consulted and did not agree with the
government's decision to return the pair, accused of killing two
fishermen while on anti-piracy duty.
